Half Term Treats

Although today marked day one of the autumn half term, for Teen Two it was back to school as usual.
He has revision classes for most mornings, thankfully he didn't quibble about going in.
To make everyone's morning a bit happier, we stopped off at Tesco and bought a few packs of doughnuts.
That was treat number one!
Treat number two was a visit to a gelato in town.
The Teens had wanted to go in the summer, but somehow we just didn't manage to get there.
The choice is mesmerising!
We have been  in need of an ice cream parlour in this part of the world for years..and now we have four!
Two of which are right opposite each other!
How they both manage to stay in business was a mystery to me...up until today....
Whilst the Teens and I enjoyed our modest two scoops ( well one for me actually) in a tub,
others around us were tucking into waffles of gigantic proportions, single sundaes large enough for a family, all washed down with bottles of coke or Fanta.....expect....most of the food and drink was left on the table!
Some folk clearly have eyes bigger than their tummies and more money than they know what to do with!
I saw at least one tub completely untouched!
To say I was shocked is an understatement!
I really really do not like waste and this was on a huge scale!
So very thankful for my Teens who were happy with the little ( although surprisingly filling!) tubs of delight...and needless to say, not a drop was left!
Our flavours were:
Jaffa Cake
White Chocolate
Cinnamon  Crunch
Strawberry Oreo
Peanut Butter

  1. Lovely flavours - but if they ever have salted cream then go for it!
